New N*E*R*D MySpace

I am not a MySpace person, but I am an N*E*R*D person, so here is the link to their new MySpace page. Even though it would be nice to see some updates on the actual NERD website or even on Pharrell's own official site, at least this is something. There's a nice big "COMING SOON" under "T*O*U*R DATES."
It's cool-looking and all, but not much new here folks. Is that the horse head nebula? I think that's what it's called. You can listen to "Everyone Nose," but I'm sure it's already on your iTunes, right?

Interview with Lupe catches him asking for Chris Brown tickets

RWD magazine had an interview with Lupe Fiasco recently in which he had to pause and take another call with a "D Jones" to get the hookup for some Chris Brown tickets. You can read the interview here. I thought I'd share since a lot of the news on here has been Kanye West and Pharrell Williams-oriented lately. It's got some interesting stuff comparing Lupe's first and second albums. If you're a video game nerd like me then you'll probably wanna check it out just to read what Lupe has to say about SEGA.

Child Rebel Soldier Album while on The Glow In The Dark Tour?

Don't act like I never told ya...haha oh man what did I say? MTV U.K. apparently thinks there's some merit to my idea that CRS will write or record their album while they are on tour together. Check out the article here. "There’s now speculation they will perform as a three-some on the tour and could even record a rumoured album while on the road." They gotta perform Us Placers, right? Let's hope so!

Glow In The Dark Tour

Check out the Icon Page for this icon and more!

And we have The Glow In The Dark Tour confirmation: Kanye West, Rihanna, NERD, Lupe Fiasco

Here's the entry to Kanye's blog in which he finally shows us all of the poster he was hinting at earlier. As a Sci-Fi fan, I gotta say I'm loving the STARWARS-esque font.

A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip plans to work with CRS

Check out Exclaim!'s time line for A Tribe Called Quest. Toward the bottom of the 2007 paragraph you can read the following: "[Q-Tip is] also looking to contribute production to Child Rebel Soldiers, a collaboration between Kanye West, Fiasco and Pharrell Williams..."

Kanye shows us some Glow In The Dark Tour promotional material

Check out the latest entry at Kanye West's blog here to see various pieces of promotional material for The Glow In The Dark Tour. He really knows how to create anticipation: the images are incomplete and will leave you begging for more.

Perhaps even more exciting is the above image, which appears to list not only N*E*R*D, but something that looks like the top half of "LUPE." It's gonna be a Child Rebel Soldier tour!
Oh yeah and shoutout to the people using my icons over on Kanye's Blog!

N*E*R*D CD apparently nearing completion

Based on the recent BBC Blog post entitled "Finishing Touches?" I think it's safe to guess that the N*E*R*D CD apparently nearing completion. An official release date has yet to be announced, but in an interview with Pharrell said "We plan to release it next March or April." Since they're already finishing up, a March release is looking more likely. Maybe we'll get to see it even sooner?
By the way, I enjoyed Kanye's post on his blog today that was titled "THIS IS RETARDED" so I made an icon that goes with it. I've been adding more icons so don't forget to check them out.

Glow in the Dark Tour: Kanye West+ N*E*R*D...?

Kanye first mentioned The Glow In The Dark Tour back in March 2007. He announced the name on MTV to make sure no one else would use the idea. Recently on his blog he posted this entry titled "This is my shit... GET READY FOR THE GLOW IN THE DARK TOUR!!!!!!!!!!!" and featuring a picture of N*E*R*D from the Fly or Die album pictures. N*E*R*D touring with Kanye West is probably the best thing that could happen. As mentioned by some of the commenters, one can't help but wonder if Lupe Fiasco will be involved. Child Rebel Soldier pre-album tour? Maybe they write the CRS album while touring together, then it would be done at the end of 2008. That'd be perfect, right?
Check out The Glow In The Dark Tour place-holder website:

Child Rebel Soldier Icons

Okay so this blog could use some original content. I really like playing with photoshop so I've decided to start making CRS-related icons. Feel free to put these on your journal or blog or whatever. Right now I just have a couple for you, but I promise there will be more soon!
